Justice Surya Kant of the Punjab and Haryana High Court today restrained the Fun Republic management from further construction and directed the petitioner to videograph the spot to see that the order of the court was not violated.
Justice Surya Kant directed the SHO, Manimajra, to remain present in the court on February 25 and produce the daily diary register to explain the steps, if any, taken pursuant to the complaint filed by the petitioner.
The orders were issued on a petition of Sandeep Arora of M/s Suraj Shopping Centre at Fun Republic, Manimajra.
The petitioners sought directions to the SSP, Chandigarh, and SHO, Manimajra, to register a criminal case of theft and for restoration of possession forthwith on account of the “mala fide” action of the FR management which, the petitioner alleged, had violated the law by constructing a wall in front of the entrance of the tenanted premises. The petitioner alleged that earlier he had three kiosks, one on the ground floor and two on the first, vide three separate agreements.
He submitted that on Feb 12 night, the FR management constructed a 29-ft-wide wall with height to the roof level, blocking the entire premises and leaving no space even to enter it. The petitioner stated that the police did not register a case against the management.
